and compare X&Y by Coldplay with HTDAB by U2


I think X&Y is better than "dismantle atomic bomb"

I will come with song by song comparison later

All great but they need a big change now

For HTDAAB vs X&Y. I could be forced to answer but it is basically a tie.

As for comparing X&Y and the Bomb - I did it in another thread, and it came out equal.

X&Y Vs. HTDAAB

Square One Vs. Vertigo
Like both songs, but Vertigo has a bit more edge to it.
0-1

What If Vs. Miracle Drug
Neither are the greatest songs on their albums, prefer Miracle Drug ever so slightly
0-2

White Shadows Vs. Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
SYCMIOYO, no contest
0-3

Fix You Vs. Love And Peace Or Else
LAPOE is the best song on HTDAAB in my opinion.
Again, no contest.
0-4

Talk Vs. City Of Blinding Lights
Love Talk, COBL is good but not great, I'll give this one to Coldplay.
1-4

X&Y Vs. All Because Of You
Neither.
Tie: 1-4

Speed Of Sound Vs. A Man And A Woman
AMAAW is very underrated, in my opinion
1-5

A Message Vs. Crumbs From Your Table
Can't decide, another tie.
Tie: 1-5

Low Vs. One Step Closer
2-5

The Hardest Part Vs. Original Of The Species
2-6

Swallowed In The Sea Vs. Yahweh
2-7

Twisted Logic Vs. Fast Cars
2-8


X&Y 2
HTDAAB 8



I like Coldplay and all three of their albums, but I think that HTDAAB is a far better album than X&Y.
Also agree with bsp77 about the need for Coldplay to change their style for the next album.

1) Parachutes - (The only coldplay album I like)
2) AROBTTH- Bought day of release, and I like some of the stuff
3) X&Y- Downloaded the album, listened to it and although I like a few riffs here and there, overall it is a very boring record, I find no relation with the lyrics.

1) Parachutes
2) AROBTTH (suffers from a weak second half IMO, although the first one is first-rate)
